Zlatan Ibrahimovic proved that he is once again essential for AC Milan, despite reports linking the club with Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is widely known to be a very confident man, but one can certainly expect clashes between him and Carlos Tevez if the Argentine striker moves to the San Siro. However, Zlatan Ibrahimovic once again proved that his the striker to have in your squad if winning the League is a top priority. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has won the domestic title consecutively in the last eight years without exception, which could be a new record by all means. His AC Milan side currently lead the table, although only on goal difference from Juventus.
However, it still brought about the best in the Swedish striker in the match against Atalanta. Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored from the penalty spot to give AC Milan all three points against Atalanta, which turned out to be a crucial result given that Juventus also managed to win the match against Lecce. As a result, AC Milan continued to lead the table albeit only on goal difference. Kevin Prince Boetang scored the other goal for AC Milan, as they continued their dominance at the top of the table with a 2-0 win over Atalanta.
Meanwhile, Udinese also managed to keep the pressure on the top two by winning against Cesena in the most impressive fashion on the weekend. Udinese were by far the best team during the weekend, as they ran rampant over a poor Cesena side. The 4-1 win over Cesena gives Juventus and AC Milan a real concern in the form of Udinese. They remain in the third position, although only two points separating them from the top two. A five point gap exists between them and fourth placed Lazio.
